Within a stone's throw, each of the other, in New York city, stand two famous buildings, known and visited of all men — Trinity church and the Stock Exchange. Few thoughtful per- sons, I fancy, acquainted with Wall street, but have made some comment on the juxtaposition of these opposing sovereignties of New York. Both have practically endless wealth at their disposal, both are living forces in the lives of thousands, both are appropri- ately enthroned in the heart of hearts of our greatest city. Yet in their strictly contrasting functions and alienate activities fire and water are not more unlike than they. To a stranger in the galleries of the Exchange a spectacle is presented always unique, often fascinating. The pit before him is filled with a dense and agitated mass, and a hoarse confusion of sounds. On every side there is the same restless activity, hour after hour the same unintelligible noise. In and out, hither and thither, up and down, the various figures move, changeless in their change, purposeless in their purpose. The eye tires of its intricate mazes, the ear of its baffling cry. The mind fails in attempt to thread a labyrinth of activity so blind. Movement without se- quence or aim, breathless hurry, feverish gesture, tumultuous, de- lirious energy, mark the place and hour. It cannot be compared 342 WALL STREET ETHICS. to a stormy sea, for that has direction, and here is none. It cannot be compared to the fury of a mob, for that is unified in purpose, and here is no unity. It is a dance, tuneless and orderless, a jan- gle of warring sounds, an ebullition in which each several atom fiercely severs itself from its fellows. Here is the triumph of the individual. Every sundered unit is constituted into a separate whole. Some singular chemistry has disintegrated all the affini- ties of kind, and the forces before neutralized in organic society are here free to act alone with crude, native, naked fierceness. Hence the pungency, the acritude, of the atmosphere, as of a laboratory. Under circumstances so peculiar, strangeness ceases to be strange. A man quietly making his way through the throng sud- denly throws up his arms with a loud, apparently aimless, interjec- tion : a crowd like lightning breaks into a delirium of shouts and mad effort, which as quickly subsides. There are those rushing headlong here and there ; there are others wildly shouting, with tireless, poignant iteration. Every gesture is violent, every word a scream. At times there is a concentration of all this vagrant energy, and the result is something terrible to see. All hurl them- selves toward the common centre, tearing, rending their passage with frenzy, every feeling of community annihilated in mob. Primitive, selfish instinct has subsumed all sense of relationship. The hearts of men are stricken with judicial blindness, lightless as first chaos. At such a moment men would drag down their own fathers, and trample them, unconsciously, to get one step nearer their object. Equally the dissipated tumult gathers into a hideous bruit that tortures hearing. All that clash of separate rage — how it rends and shatters the air, as it were the herald of universal ruin ! The listening soul shrinks back offended at such absolute discord. It is the song of final and perfect dissolution, of death and hell. But these are first impressions, and external. There comes a time when it is no longer possible to remain a cool observer of a scene, which, like a maelstrom, with resistless gyrations absorbs every least and greatest into itself. A strong necessity is laid upon one to feel, to know, this rabid Scylla, even while we are con- WALL STREET ETHICS. 343 vinced that to know it to the full is to become its victim — an ex- perience so highly rated that only a life can pay the price. Its vortical fury, which seems to devour even itself, nothing can glut or stay. The intense excitement that fills the house like a tempest seizes upon the calmest onlooker, and every nerve tingles with a sense, half sympathy, half revulsion. For whatever else there may be here, there is life, — even if we think it the life of a morbid principle, still life, — and as such, compelling response. It is not difficult to understand this rapture, as it were, and ecstasy. Sin- gular in its presentment here, the world is no stranger to the fact. You may call it an insanity — so it is ; but, from Pythian inspira- tion and poetic frenzy to the Reign of Terror, it is a question of species, not of kind. . All the intenser emotions, whether good or evil, subvert nature. Shall we, then, by avoiding the one, resign the other? If, then, we must utterly condemn the Sansculotte, must we also consent to " crown the poets with flowers and lead them out forever from the city"? That suggestive line was no slip in Plato's logic. His was a true Republic, purchasing medi- ocrity of powers with the loss of every superlative quality in what- ever direction. Mountain and valley, shade and sunshine, we would need a new heaven and a new earth indeed for such a new creature. There is only the fearful alternative of possible supreme height coupled with possible supreme depth, the tremendous cor- ollary of death to life, of hell to heaven. And yet, with whatever mingled feelings we watch this curious demonstration, a certain admiration is inseparable from it. The vacillations of this inebriate multitude constitute a most real power reaching to the finest issues of the remotest regions of the land, the sense of which adds the crowning fascination to its action. Here is a mystery of human polity which might stagger any faith, were it not that institutions, like wisdom, are justified of their chil- dren. We are amazed, confounded, yet the world is not. Chaos ! we cry ; but here, as elsewhere, the madness shapes itself to method, and we are hauntingly remembered of another chamber where those were charged with drunkenness who none the less moulded the world's central and mightiest factor. It is the stand- 344 WALL STREET ETHICS. ing miracle of history, not less than of Catholic dogma, how out of midsummer madness is woven the vesture of divine wisdom. Is it an insuperable difficulty, then, that out of a grosser fantasy a cheaper wisdom should spring? When we have solved the enigma of Apollo and the Sibyl, we shall have discovered life's most jeal- ous secret ; we shall have answered forever the implacable Sphinx that sits for all men just outside the gates of knowledge in wait to destroy. To an atmosphere so heavily charged, that of Trinity is antipo- dal, and it seems hardly consistent that the passage should be so quickly made.- The contrast is so sharp as to amount to a rebuke. Not in itself beautiful, or even imposing. Trinity acquires both qualities by virtue of its position. After the tension and the glare of the " street," its quiet seems elevation akin to the religious peace of the hill set above the din of towns. A sense of infinity is induced, for rest is of all attributes most indisputably divine, and not without* an inner symbolism have all men sanctified worship with Sabbatic silence and rest. Silence is one of the elder gods "that wrought out existence before the birth of time." It is the finality of wisdom, the immortality of beauty, the fulness of beati- tude about the crystal sea. It floods these narrow walls with a grace denied them by art, and imposes its proper majesty on all who enter them. With a decorum not wholly conventional, does the great congregation kneel in customary prayer. Nor is it* wholly fortuitous, the grave cadence of the Anglican rite. An age of more exquisite feeling than ours built those lofty praises, so wedding spirit and letter as to make an indisseverable unity. For all perfect art (and what of human doing, even this, does not come under that head?) is perfect incarnation of ideas in forms, a con- junction so exactly ordered that to think to change it were an im- pertinence, even a sort of sacrilege. A right instinct names such things creations, the product of a power in man allied to that of God ; and we justly entitle them to similar reverence with the handiwork of the Almighty. And as we can conceive of few men so degraded as to be beyond tlie touch of naturiil beauty, so here, though with less confidence, we can with difficulty be- WALL STREET ETHICS. 345 lieve any to be unmoved by the fine charm of this spiritual art. It is a grace, like sun and shower, often unconsciously or ungrate- fully received, but it does not fail of its beneficence. Divinely patient, it labors for the end which is not yet. No doubt the liturgy falls generally on dulled ears, as use dims the sweetness of all sweet things — scent of rose and flush of dawn and rippling seas. Yet there is something vital in such use, and its educational value is only the greater that it is unconscious. With all truly beautiful things, familiarity at first seems to destroy their dignity, but ends in investing them with a new and better. The golden summer sun on deep-bladed grass — what in all nature so familiar, and what, as years go by, more unwearyingly, tenderly lovely ! Perhaps the sentiment of it never once rises into con- sciousness, for it is no longer external, but woven into being, as lightly carried as perfect health, and as integral. It has become a habit of the soul. The immemorial words of the Conjiteor roll murmurously toward the great altar with its saints and crucifix of stone. All knees are bent, all lips move with common prayer. The individ- ual has no place. It is not '' I," but " we." Modern scholarship has sought to demonstrate that the Church in initio was communis- tic. In a very deep sense it was and is : that certainly can never be denied so long as its holiest act is a "Communion," and there remains in its creed the article of " a communion of saints." And since our vices are often but our virtues misguided or misplaced, it is far from impossible that the extravagant theories of a St. Simon may not be the natural revolt against the individualistic excesses of the last three hundred years. Certainly there has been in Protestant Christendom a tendency to minimize the corpo- rate idea of the Church, that has frittered away general truths into private opinion, and social into personal religion. We have cast aside feudal Christianity to set up a commercial one, based on ideas of competition in trade and profit and loss. The gain, alas I has not been without offsets, and there are even hints that our last state is worse than our first. For feudalism had the one ethical advantage over us of at least being an organism, and not a refined 34^ WALL STREET ETHICS. selfishness proclaiming universal brotherhood, Jacob-like to sup- plant its brother, with the necessary consequence of converting Esau into a vagabond. It is certainly curious to follow the devel- opment of the Golden Rule into the doctrine of laissez-faire, and even more so to witness the moral shock that the counting-room feels at the crudities and credulities of earlier date. From murder to lying, from robbery to cheating, from persecution to license : is the change wholly to better things? Many things have been gained: have none been lost? Is there no foundation in fact for the contempt, so resented by modern sentiment, that has been felt from Plato down for the commercial character? In perpetual rebuke, the voice of the Church, however unheed- ed by priest and people alike, proclaims a wider truth, speaks a large language, which we have ceased to comprehend. It is always the Church and not the people, the priest and not the preacher, the sacrament and not the sermon, a terminology always emphasizing the general and permanent without denying the sin- gular antl temporal, as nature furnishes broad conditions of growth under w^hich the individual must live as he may. Undoubting faith built her walls for the gathering of all nations, and adapted her ritual to universal conditions. Man and not men, the solidarity of the race in the Body of one Lord, is her aim. Catholic is her proudest title. Such is the letter of the law, but the spirit in which we read it how dissenting ! It seems to be a perpetual fact, as of old : " He came to His own, and His own received Him not," and "A people that knew not Me shall call upon My name." What a fearful par- adox, yet applicable to every realm of truth, that it is always the chosen Jew that crucifies the Lord, and the Gentile who worships him ! D. L. Lawrence.

Cease your singing, cease your swinging, Fly unto your nest. The shades are falling, night is calling Nature to its rest. H. S. Hopkins. THE CIVIL WAR AND AMERICAN POETRY. Action and thought are the two main threads, the warp and the woof, of every people's life. Now one and now the other gives char- acter to the finished texture. Causes and results come out as we take the web apart and learn the make-up of the whole fabric. The idea is the soul of history, action is the body, and each yields a counter influence. Strife has ever been the seed of art, though in the ugl}^ germ there may be little likeness to the full-grown plant. A national tumult may be necessary to bring out an idea, but in later years art will clothe the truth in shining garments. Yet war must be coupled with sentiment if it would do more than stimulate the intelligence of a few men. A struggle to dethrone a monarch or to fix a pope in a chair cannot do this ; but, if eternal law is in the fight, when the shock is past indignant eloquence may give way to a certainty of power, thoughtful and poetic. America is the concrete expression of an intellectual and politi- cal emancipation. While men were yet in chains, some minds 348 THE CIVIL WAR AND AMERICAN POETRY. were making nature a friend, and reaching out to nature's Maker in strivings for truth. The war-cloud came to hang darkly over our poetic spirit ; art was veiled in a partial eclipse ; bitter- ness and enmity filled men's hearts, and only a few lights were still bright in the shadow. Standing at the mile-stone '61, we look back to Bryant, and forward even into conjecture, in finding how the jar of conflict mastered the thinking mind and the poetic result. In the main 'tis true that critical periods are uncreative, and poetry does not appear until genius can find time. The Reformation, the Cromwellian Rebellion, the French Rev- olution, our War of Independence, — all these mighty earth strug- gles, — are unsung ; yet Homer could tell the story of strife between two semi-barbarous tribes with such dignity that men search here to-day for ideals of heroism. Germany changed as if by magic from a nation of war to a people of letters. Our martial poetry, of intrinsic poetical charm, fills but a modest volume. Read these pages, and you find more crudeness than finish. Feeling and sentiment are lost in harsh description, mel- ody in the fire of patriotism. The instant in effect tends to decay in verse ; that which tickles the partisan taste soon falls before peaceful criticism. The lesson is plain : dignity of theme will not insure literary interest. The poet must elevate and add himself to his subject, and this must be commensurate with his art. Tendencies in thought and feeling were moulding half a hun- dred years, through classicism and sentimentalism, before we began to breathe the free upper air, — before Bryant, from nature and reflection, coupled art and rhythm in true poetry. But the tone and spirit of the old school were too well fixed to give way even to war. When the noble "Father of Song" spoke for the slave, he spoke in prose. It grew dark and light again, but "The Flood of Years "came from the same genius as " Thanatopsis." He was eager to chant the triumph of a great principle in the " Death of Slavery," but the attempt little revealed the patriotism in his heart. Longfellow was no polemic reformer. Broad culture turned his genius from teaching an indignant lesson. In his eight dis- THE CIVIL WAR AND AMERICAN POETRY. 349 tinctive slavery poems there is more pathos than fire. The *' Slave's Dream " has just a touch of Whittier's fierce flame, but the tender sadness of the " Quadroon Girl" is the prevailing tone. Poe finished his desolate life and mental struggle while the clash was only in word. Had his days been more in number we would scarce expect, in one who could not master himself, a champion of freedom's cause. Emerson was freeing the soul while his countrymen fought for the negro. He stood upon the height of art, and heard not the cannon's roar. Rising higher and yet higher, he hunted world truth, oblivious of the march of armies. He had his mission, to emancipate thought : the boys in blue had theirs, to emancipate the slave. Both succeeded, but in separate courses. In those days Lowell was a patriot and reformer. To-day he could teach the New England farmer to love his flocks and his fields, to-morrow make him hate the bondage of the slave ; yet his chambered genius was unharmed by the contact. The same mind could proclaim the truths of freedom, and turn to such ideal beauty as the "Vision of Sir Launfal." In such successes as " The Com- memoration Ode," depth of feeling and sentiment are embodied in a patriotism which is intellectual ; and herein lies the secret of his range. The conservative Holmes would never have sounded the trumpet for the slave's release, yet hardly had the war begun when his stirring lyrics were heard for the right. He was not, however, so much a champion of right as of his country's unity. Indeed, in all the old school, art suffered little, or none at all, until we come to Whittier. The tone of his muse was scarcely in harmony before its soul was lost in the fiery war-song, and vigor of life was passed before he turned to nature and the flower. He had done a work, but not that of an artist. Perhaps there may have been sown the seed of that sublime faith and trust of these later years, but he would have climbed higher and sung in calmer strains had his sincerity been turned to other themes. We might pause to speak of Stedman and his "Alice of Mon- 350 THE CIVFL WAR AND AMERICAN POETRY. mouth," of Brownell and his "Bay Fight," of Willson and his " Old Sergeant," or, at the South, of Timrod and Paul Hayne, but it would only multiply examples where art has suffered at the hand of action. A single cloud does not make a rainy day, so the war itself did not kill poetry, but the changes in pursuit and thought all find a source here, and work to this as a definite resultant. Speculation is idle which would presume to estimate to a nicety the genius turned into other channels during those four years, and the pre- ceding period of hatred. In following the trail of change from strife to art, many footprints are lost in the mingling of mighty interests. The civil war marked the end of our literary youth, together with the advent of a distinct national and intellectual life. Strife was the absorbent when a second group of poets should have been forming. Original genius found its outlet in new paths. Artistic work of hand and thought fell at the sound of war, and many an imagination became confused. Journalism received an impetus such that it absorbed our literary men. The force of this counter-action is now spent, in that the hindrance has taken unto itself a literary tone. The country financial had to be made anew, and men could not wait either to write or to read poetry. When a nation's pulse runs high, its normal beating is a question not of days but of years. Furthermore, when public taste craved pleasure again, it demanded a new kind of food, and modern American fiction answered the call. It was a mere question of supply and demand in our literary life, and there has been a naturalism and honest attempt at descrip- tion which we have enjoyed. The literary pathway of every people is like a vein of mineral, now broadening into a wealth of richness, now narrowing almost to a point. Nationality, riches, art, — this has been the world course. I am inclined to think that the good results of the war are as yet barely felt. We see the evil now ; the restless spirit has not yet become quiet. Men of to-day can yet see the blood and hear the crushing bullet — sights and sounds which forbid poetic touch. THE ST. LAWRENCE. 35 1 We have not forgotten how in these little New England hamlets mothers wept bitterly at the cost, yet turned with tear-stained face and calm trust to care for the home. Those cries of woe so pain- fully sad are yet faintly heard, but there is coming a time when men's thoughts will reach grander truth because of that pure and holy goodness. The spring-time will come again, and then the summer. World scenes change slowly, and it may yet be long before a new school shall end this breathing interval in stronger utterance. Not always will our poets be content to wash over the old dirt rather than dig in new mines. Higher ideals will yet be seen, the soul will peer farther into eternity, God and man will come nearer together, human justice and divine kindness will be one, and heavenly goodness will smile on human effort. O. S. Warden. THE ST. LAWRENCE. The ride around Lake Ontario from Niagara was tedious enough. It occupied all the sultry August night, and comfort seemed out of the question. There was not, therefore, the least hesitancy or regret on the part of any of us, when, just after it had become light, we were directed to leave the cars for the boat. The short walk from the station to the dock did much to revive us. We inhaled deep draughts of the cool morning breeze blowing fresh from the river, and even the clean plank walk, wet with the dew, seemed refreshing. After pacing back and forth several times on the wharf to in- spect the steamer, w^e went on deck to select our positions for the day's ride. As we sat waiting for the baggage to be loaded, the sun furnished us a most pleasing spectacle. The leaden clouds of the east, penetrated by the alchemy of his rays, became richest silver and gold ; and rising he drove them apart into little tufts, until there, in the azure sea, appeared. a golden representation of the Thousand Islands which were just ahead of us. 352 THE ST. LAWRENCE. The sweetness and beauty of the dawn were soon forgotten, however, as the course which led among the islands opened its attractions to us. Hither and thither ran inviting passages, each seeming, as we approached, more attractive than the others. We went a little distance in one, turned greedily to another, but were soon off in yet another and another, until we seemed fairly lost in a labyrinth whose passages were filled with beauty and delight. The Thousand Islands are indeed so full of pleasure that one is loath to leave one watery vista unexplored, one island unvisited, for he feels sure that he is leaving some charm unseen. At Alexandria Bay the landing was filled with people, decked in gay summer costumes, who crowded down to meet friends who had come to join them in their holiday retreat. A little after leaving Ogdensburg, where the Oswegatchie, flow- ing in, struggles so hard to maintain its identity, keeping a clear line of division between its waters and its noble rivals for two miles or more, we saw away down the river what looked like a wall of whitest marble stretching directly across our course. While we were speculating on what it might be, the boat put in to shore, and passengers and baggage were transferred to a smaller, stauncher one. Then we knew that we must be nearing the first of the rap- ids which were to lend such pleasure to the last part of our ride. As we came nearer and heard the roar of the rushing river, and saw that the white wall was of sparkling foam, we began to feel a little uneasy, but the stern face and firm hand in the pilot-house reassured us ; and as the boat, leaping the wall, sprang bravely forward on her hard way, tossed from side to side upon the bat- tling waters, we forgot to fear in the excitement of this novel expe- rience, and it was with a feeling of regret rather than of relief that we saw her shoot out into a clear, smooth course again. So we passed one after another the upper rapids, and then came a long way of wide, majestic river, which occupied the later hours of the warm afternoon, until there came floating to our quiet deck the soft, sweet notes of the evening Angelus, as it rung from the tower of a convent on a little island in mid-river. So impressive were the surroundings, so holy seemed the sound, that, of whatever QTe e j arbnroutK erary y oalhlu. DARTMOUTH COLLEGE, HANOVER, N. H., 1889. BELIEVING that there were among the Alumni of the College, men more capable of entertaining and instru6ling from the lecture platform than the speakers who appear here in the regular course, we during the past year put into practical operation an ALUMNI LECTURE COURSE, in which The Lectures have been free to all, Each Speaker an Alumnus, The Subjects, practical and instructive. In addition to the pleasure and profit derived from the lectures we have gained a familiarity with the names and faces of some of the more prominent Alumni, while they in turn have been brought back to see the progress made here during the past few years, and in this way the ties of interest between the College and her sons have been greatly strengthened. The Lectures have been given in the college church.

RAIN IN MAY 353 religious persuasion, one was led to bow with reverence and hail the blessed Mother of our Lord. An acquaintance of the day, after his devotions, told me the story of the founding of the convent in this queer place. A hun- dred years ago a mother and daughter owned and dwelt upon the island. They lived quietly here, loving their island home and sel- dom leaving it, until there came a successful suitor for the maid- en's hand. Many had preceded him, for she was very beautiful ; but all had gone their wa}^ without encouragement. As he ven- tured once a return to the city by going down the river and so through the rapids, his little boat proved too frail for the angry waters, which swallowed up it and St. Katharine's lover. In her grief there appeared to her an angel who spoke words of comfort, and directed her to become a bride of the Church, and found here a convent. "This is the story of the convent, which belongs to the Gray order." As he finished, I noticed that the boat was stopping ; and, look- ing about to find the cause, saw close by her side a little boat in which were the old Indian pilot and his two sturdy sons, who had come to take us through the treacherous Lachine rapids. Passing these in safety, and rounding the southern end of Hochelaja, there rose at our left Cartier's Mont-Real, and at its feet lay its name- sake, our destination. Chas, M. Smith. RAIN IN MAY. All silent, save a murmur through the leaves, Slow, steady dripping from the weeping eaves, The robin's glad, quick cry from far away ! The mountains fly torn flags of mist to-day. And mingle on their sides the blue and gray. In robes of brown and green the meadows lie, And claim the blessing of the kindly sky. Oh ! sweet assurance of the fields' increase ! Soft rain of May, bid every tumult cease. And grant my soul the blessing of thy peace ! O. S. Davis. 354 ' ^-^-^ CRYPTOGRAM. r THE CRYPTOGRAM. I. The post-master and his clerk were busy sorting the mail in the little village of X , Pa. " Thomas J. Fanning," said the post- master, holding up a letter. " Why, that must be for old Tom over in the mountains. Well, he '11 be down by to-morrow, and if it's for him he can get it." So the letter was laid away till Tom Fanning, or Esau, as the villagers called him on account of his huge beard and long, un- kempt hair, should come down from the mountains, where he dwelt alone in a rude hut, and claim his letter. Tom was a vagabond. He lived, no one knew just how, but ostensibly by hunting and fishing. It was rumored that when pro- visions were short, he would not hesitate to appropriate whatever chance threw in his way. About once a week he would come down from his hut in the mountains, to the village, where he would get his jug filled with liquor, idle around until night, and then go home. When he had first come to the village, his unusual appearance and disposition, — which seemed to shun rather than invite obser- vation, — had excited some comment. Rumors of a lurid type had been set in circulation concerning him. But as time passed on and he seemed to be settled down to stay, his presence was ac- cepted by the people, and he came to be looked on as a permanent fixture in X . On Friday the letter addressed to Tom had been received at the post-office. The next day, Saturday, Tom was due at the village according to his usual custom, when the post-master would deliver him his mail, and find out, if he could, by a judicious ap- plication of bad whiskey, from whom it came. On Saturday afternoon, therefore, he was waiting impatiently for Tom's appearance. The post-office was full of the usual crowd of loafers, waiting for anything that should turn up which could afford them any excitement. THE CRYPTOGRAM. . 355 ** Hev ye heerd the news?" said a new-comer, addressing the crowd. *'No; what is it?" they asked, sitting up and taking their hands out of their pockets. '* Esau 's lit out," was the laconic response. This statement roused the post-master, and pushing to the front, he prepared to interrogate the messenger. Bill Dobson. *' What 's thet yer say? Old Tom gone? When? Where?" *'He's gone 's sure as guns," said Bill. "I met him this mornin' t' other side o' the mountain, with all his traps, headed towards the Ohier." " Did he say where he was goin'?" said the post-master. ** Didn't speak to him. He saw me, and would n't come nigh me. I did n't calkerlate he wanted ter talk, so I let him go and shoved on. When I got down on this side of the mountain I found his hut all knocked down flat. I reckon he 's got tired of stayin' so long in one place, and lit out whar ther 's more game." All hope of finding out anything from Tom vanished from the post-master's mind now. The ^letter would goto the dead-letter office. Perhaps it contained money. If so , but then the post- master was honest, and, moreover, there were others who knew of it besides himself It must go to Washington. II. In one of the rooms at the dead-letter office, a clerk was open- ing mail from a great pile before him, and at length took from the pile one addressed to Thomas J. Fanning, X , Pa. He opened it, and drew forth two sheets of paper. Here is what was writ- ten : "41 gih hsspf hsspf hsspf ijmp ras vysciypezy scive jimlg xeiok ilxjs kimhhmf ilxsh xsrivetu. waszvyscgii hiv. asry scxelx whregih wwsvg hivilx js vihvs ilx hsspf cf hikrize ifx wyg hsspf." The second was a plan, evidently of the interior of a house. In one of the rooms was drawn a red cross ; in a corner of this room was a rude sketch of a coffin. He scrutinized the envelope carefully to see, if possible, where 356 THE CRYPTOGRAM. it was posted. The post-mark, however, was too indistinct. All that could be read was " Eas — Con — N. Y." This aroused the curiosity of the clerk, and, after considerable difficulty, he deci- phered the cryptogram. Translated, it read as follows : " Blood must be avenged by blood. The order of the Red Cross demands that you now redeem your vows. Spare not. Do the bidding of the Great Chief as you value your own life. Blood \ Blood ! ! Blood ! ! ! Dec. 14." Here was a mystery. A letter of a sanguinary nature, urging some one to commit a murder, and a plan of the house and room, even the very corner in which it was to be committed. The one who was to do the murder must, of course, be Thomas J. Fanning. Suddenly the clerk came to himself and realized that Thomas J. Fanning, whoever he was, had never received this letter, and con- sequently could n't obey its orders. A detective was at once put on the case. His first point was to find Thomas J. Fanning. The letter was addressed to him at X , Pa., but that he was not there at the time of its receipt was evidenced by the fact of its not having been delivered to him. However, he at once set out for X , where he arrived at evening, and found, as he had expected, that Fanning was not there. "Tom Fanning?" said the post-master. "No, he ain't here ; ain't been here for two months. He lit out one mornin', nigh onto two months ago, headed towards the Ohier. Bill Dobson seen him go." At this moment one of the men who had gone out came in, fol- lowed by Bill Dobson and a crowd of men. The stranger took Bill outside, and finding that he could n't learn of Fanning's probable destination, noted down as accurate a description as he could, and took his leave, himself headed tow- ards the Ohio. To trace the journeyings of the detective, in his search for Tom Fanning, would be a task beyond the scope of this story. He found him at last getting his jug filled in a low groggery in an Ohio town. As no crime or definite charge could be preferred THE CRYPTOGRAM. 357 against him, he was lodged in jail on complaint of being an idle and worthless character, and here, for a time, we will leave him. III. Up in the northern part of the state of New York two school- boys were sitting in their room talking, and reading at random from a newspaper. Suddenly the older of the boys stopped, and then read hurriedly the following note : " One of Pinkerton's detectives arrested on Tuesday last a man named Thomas J. Fanning for supposed complicity with a secret order known as the Order of the Red Cross. A letter addressed to this man at X , Pa., came to the dead-letter office about a month ago. It was written in cipher, and had a plan of a house, with one of the rooms marked by a red cross. One corner of this room was further indicated by a coffin. The clerk into whose hands the letter fell, attracted by the drawing, deciphered it. It was as follows : *' 'Blood must be avenged by blood. The Order of the Red Cross demands that you now redeem your vows. Spare not. Do the bidding of the Great Chief as you value your own life. Blood ! Blood ! I Blood ! ! ! Dec. 14.' " ''Isn't that what we wrote in that infamous cipher?" said Mack. " Yes ; go on." "The letter and translation were put into the hands of the po- lice, who have succeeded in finding and arresting Thomas J. Fan- ning. His arrest will undoubtedly lead to the discovery of a gang of cutthroats, — the Order of the Red Cross, as they call them- selves. As no definite charge can be made against Fanning, he will be held for some minor ofTence until the police can find the authors of the letter." Anax had come to himself by the time Mack had finished read- ing. " Well, who would ever thought that there could be any such man as that, after we took especial pains to hunt up a fictitious name, and in that place, too ! — and that that letter should be deciphered, 35 8 A MATIN SONG. and a man actually arrested for some unknown plot — that 's more than we bargained for." " Well, what are we to do about it? That is the question." *' Does n't it say he will be held for some minor offence until the authors of the letter can be found ? " *' Yes." " Then I do n't see but what we are all right." In the next paper was this article : "Thomas J. Fanning, who was arrested a little over a week ago for supposed complicity with an organization known as the Order of the Red Cross, escaped from jail last night, and cannot be found." ** Well," said Mack, '* I hope he never will be." " So do I," replied Anax. And he never was. The police are still looking for the Order of the Red Cross. H. S. Hopkins. A MATIN SONG. When May, her odorous locks unbound, Comes floating on the balmy air, She scatters snowy blossoms round. And joy and mirth are everywhere. In every bush a songster trills Unto his mate a lay of love ; And every blade of grass distills A nectar from the mists above. 'Tis sweet to brush the sparkling dew. When morning's air is full of song. Then lovers' hearts thrill through and through ; And life is gay, and hope is strong. y. II. Gerould. The Chair. A bow — a few months of mingled pleasure and work — another bow, and the labor of each group of college editors is finished. The incoming board is anxious to move the world with the pen, the retiring one glad to lay its worn goose-quill away in peace. College journalism is not all mental luxury, nor yet all grind, but it is, chemically speaking, an indissoluble compound, in which the latter is sometimes a large constituent. Those coming in plan what they will do ; we going out think what we might have done. What you do and what you neglect alike shape your result. There is a satisfaction in a completed task, and we shall not reflect our failures. We have done what we could ; are at peace with ourselves and all the world. We thank those who have sup- ported us, and have naught but kindly feeling toward those who have not. As we close our third volume, we can say with an added emphasis that the *' Lit." has come to stay. A prophecy avails less than a hope or a wish : hence we extend the choicest of these to those who succeed us. We can invent no new formula for a touching farewell : so without further delay we make our second bow. Every onward step, literary or material, is with a hurry and then a rest; a period of push, then a stopping. Sometimes there are periods within periods that are more or less representative. So it is in the art of book-making. Some years it seems as though everybody was making a book, fearful lest all truth might be told, and they be left without honor in a universe fully explored ; in another, every literary person appears to be waiting for somebody else to publish something that may aflbrd an idea. Yet waiting is often a stimulus, and if there were more of it in our genius we should exclaim less frequently, — "A book's a book, although there 's nothing in 't." Every age must have its books, every phase 360 THE CHAIR. of society a new expression. So every year's publication has its feat- ures of interest. The book year is becoming a period by itself, not coincident with any astronomical division. The one just clos- ing has given us much of wholesome value and instruction. Chaff still comes with the wheat, but there is well filled grain. The holidays gave us artistic illustration of English masterpieces, finer and more tasteful than American genius and handiwork have before shown. The flashy, inelegant cut seems to have gone for good. The praiseworthy tendency of public leaders to become literary instructors in semi-historic fields has grown stronger in two notable additions, — Mr. McCullock's "Men and Measures of Half a Century," and Sheridan's "Memoirs;" both of which, if not highly literary, are yet plain lessons about important interests. No great historical work has appeared. Indeed, such books as the last two mentioned seem in part to be filling the office of extended histories. In biography, perhaps " Motley's Correspondence" has best met popular favor. The personality of the writer, the wide variety of subjects, together with the vivacity and finish of literary style, all commend it to a wide circulation. The books of travel have been interesting rather than of a quality to last. In archae- ology, Lanciani has thrown fresh light on the city that once ruled the world. The new fields which his book opens, and its compre- hensiveness, seem to indicate a standard of reference for scholars. We welcome Mr. Bryce's broad treatment of the American repub- lic as action analyzed by a philosophic mind. One has only to search in any library for authority upon American poetry*, and especially fiction, to appreciate the long felt want that has. been filled in the completion of Prof. Richardson's "American Litera- ture." A difficult task has been done in a painstaking manner, and we are proud that the accomplishment is by a Dartmouth alumnus. Two persons who can agree upon the relative excel- lence of a year's novels are rare indeed. So great is the element of pleasure, that no two sensibilities render the same verdict. Prejudice blinds critical judgment. Every one is apt to con- demn that outside his own personal experience, both in creation and expreSvsion. The snip-snap of criticism attacks the good THE CHAIR. 361 and the bad. The religious trilogy — ''Robert Elsmere," "John Ward," and "The Story of an African Farm" — have certainly kept the reviewer's pen busy, and have more or less satisfied the read- ing public. The rage over the first of these seems to be on the wane. The last two will be much later consigned to a dusty shelf. It is with more than pleasure that we chronicle Prof. Hardy's "Passe Rose," with its fascinating characters, creative life-pict- ures, scholarly neatness, all colored with that peculiar splendor and spirit of mediaeval richness. History is set with jewels of thought by a skilled hand. We almost forgot to mention in our cursory glance the appearance of the last volume of the Encyclo- pgedia Britannica — the completion of this unmatched store-house of learning. World books do not swarm into a single year, and perhaps this has not one that the 20th century will know at its close. Yet we are making great beginnings, and men are growing better. A few days before the Commencement appointments were an- nounced, we overheard two candidates speculating on the result, when one remarked, — " I would rather not speak than to take part in a discussion." The opinion of the other was the same. We see no reason for retaining this feature of our Commencement pro- gramme from year to year in the face of similar feeling on the part of nearly every speaker. The only argument in its favor is the variety it affords. No special training is given us by the college in debate outside of one short course, yet this is made a represent- ative feature upon the Commencement stage. Men may be com- pelled to have a discussion who have no aptitude for it. At any rate, eight minutes is too short a time to handle any important liter- ary or political question. It is of course impossible to please every one, but the continued disapproval of this part of our exer- cises at least deserves consideration. We take great pleasure in announcing the election of Messrs. C. M. Smith and Hopkins from '91 as members of next year's "Lit." board. The selection of a third editor will be made June 20th if we receive work to merit a choice before that date, other- wise the vacancy will not be filled until next fall. By THE Way. Yes, improbable as it may seem, one can grow in time to have an affection for this prosaic old town, despite memories of deficient examinations, and its proximity to that region sought in vain by Melville, Greely, and DeLong. Those who have endured but two or three years of seclusion in this retired place may doubt the genuineness of the statement that when the time for final sepa- ration arrives it brings with it regrets as deep as any encoun- tered in life. That any one could feel aught but pleasure on leaving college seemed to me at one time an anomaly. I was unable to reconcile with the eagerness which welcomes a holiday or a vacation the professed unwillingness of the Senior to quit his academic shades. But, pray, accept the testimony of a most violent dissenter of other days, who confessed that he wished most heartily that he could return next fall and take a post graduate course. To call Hanover " the dear old place" smacks of sentimentalism, you say. Well, to the doubting Thomas we can only suggest, Wait until you have passed the four allotted cycles in the " Groves of the Academy," as the late President Lord would say ; and after you have tried the experimental evidence, we believe your testi- mony will be on the side of sentiment and the majority. But with this regret comes a feeling of pleasure at work completed, and on the last day you will even smile with sympathy upon the wise looking oral examiner in his efforts to keep from going to sleep, and the " Prof." to whom you sang your trilogy of deficiencies — yes, you can forgive even him ; and when you roll down the long, dusty hill for the last time, you will probably feel the same throb of joy that came to David Copperfield on the morning he left the school of good Doctor Strong : you will doubtless want to get down and shake hands with the " townie " who disfigured your face in a game of foot-ball when you were a Freshman. You remember how beautifully the author of Tom Brown ex- BV THE WAY. 363 presses this in the passage he closes, by saying that it is no easy matter to fold up and lay by forever a portion of one's life, even when it can be done with honor and in thankfulness. In spite of our distance from the cities and our interminable winters, when the summer vacation arrives we are greatly favored by location compared with colleges in the Middle and Southern states, where the country is level and uninteresting. Those not afraid of sunburnt hands and faces, and perhaps blistered feet, will find ten days or two weeks spent with scrip and staff among either the Green or the White mountains a period rich in pleasure for any who are fond of scenery and mountain climbing. Winni- piseogee, Squam, and the lakes in that region, to the west Lakes George and Champlain, ofTer many temptations for camping out, while the trout streams in the northern part of this state, the for- ests of Maine and the Adirondacks, are but a comparatively short distance from here, and have many attractions for the lovers of sport with rod and gun. For those who prefer more quiet pursuits, visiting old ruins and the like, we are near ground made historic by Wolfe, Abercrom- bie, Burgoyne, Howe, Ethan Allen, and the intrepid General Stark. Crown Point, Ticonderoga or *' Old Ti.," Mt. Defiance, Bennington, and other monuments of the Revolution, appeal to all interested in the history of our first great struggle ; while be- yond, Quebec, the Saguenay and St. John, Halifax, and the dis- trict about Grand Pre tempt one to a trip down the St. Lawrence and along the coast. About Lake George hover a host of legends, one of which you remember Cooper has woven into fiction in The Last of the Mohicans. Bloody Pond and the site of Fort William Henry are still pointed out to the visitor. From expe- rience I can recommend a tramp trip across the Green Mountains, through Rutland and its gigantic marble quarries, and beyond this to Lakes George and Champlain, as being enjoyable, and involving but small drain upon the pocket-book. 3% BY THE WAY. Not until recently did I learn that on the road to Boston, which most of us travel a number of times during the year, the Webster farm and the home of Ezekiel can be seen from the car window ; and by changing cars at Lowell and taking a few hours longer, one can pass through literary Concord, and the Lexington of our primary histories, where, as the British fled, " The farmers gave them ball for ball From behind each fence and farmyard wall." With historic Boston we are doubtless all familiar ; but the coast towns of the north shore, " Fishy Swampscott, salt Nahant, and leather-scented Lynn," Salem, Marblehead, and Gloucester, are probably less known by the student hurrying home for vacation. At Nahant, to natural beauty of scenery hardly surpassed, even at Newport, is added the charm of knowing that here in the torrid months, not many years ago, came Longfellow, Prescott, Motley, Agassiz ; and to-day more modern literary celebrities frequent the place. Salem, with its memories of Hawthorne, Roger Williams, and the witches ; Marblehead, with the old fort and its cosy little harbor shut in by a finger of the land, and with its recollections of pre-Revolutionary days, of Elbridge Gerry, and of Agnes Surriage ; Gloucester, whose fishermen furnished such staunch material for our first navy, — all these are interesting places, and easy of access from Boston. To the south, Plymouth, Marshfield, the quaint old towns of Cape Cod, with their wealth of historic associations, would well repay a visit. These places might all be visited during a very small part of the vacations of a college course, by a little judi- cious planning, and with but small outlay. It is perhaps useless to say, " Do not work during your vaca- tion unless it is necessary." It has been our observation that the prodigies of activity and enterprise who are inspired to this unnat- ural folly by the praise of friends, and such remarks as " He can toil terribly," usually waste their reserve energies in gratifying their vanity, and come back here in the fall lifeless, inert, and unfit for a careful, systematic, and tireless attention to the duties of the long term. May the vacation be one of rest and pleasure for us all. Thistle-Down THE STORM. The thunders crash ; And distant rumblings roll along the sky, As deep-mouthed organ-tones through high cathedrals fly After the dash Of music ceases, and the keys are still. The darkened landscape pauses pulseless, till The lightning's flash Reveals the boisterous storm, and giant oak trees thrill. Now sounds the roar Of forest, straining every nerve against the wind ; Dead branches groan ; the sea with madness blind Lashes the shore. How awful is the murky scene, and grand ! The billows, pale with rage, slink up the strand ; And sea-mews pour Wild cries upon the terror-stricken land. y. H. G, THE PASSING OF THE TRAIN. 'T is midnight. Here beside the quiet stream I walk and ponder 'neath the lowering sky : No sound is heard, save when, like wanton dream, A scurrying gust goes softly moaning by. But, hark ! Far off I hear a gentle sound, Like murmurings low from thousand bending pines. Louder it grows : the hills and mountains round With trembling shake the valley's thin confines. A clank of breaking fetters fills the air, A roar of wind and earthquake sweeping on, A breathless rush, a fierce, confusing glare, A wild, hoarse shriek of glee — the train is gone. C. F. Robinson. Crayon Bleu. Introduction to the Books of the Old Testament. O. S. Stearns. Boston : Silver. Burdett & Co. Full of meat. Rich in new suggestions, valuable references, and useful tables.

A Story of Washington, the National Capital. Charles Burr Todd. New York: Put- nam's. $1.75. For sale by DeWolfe, Fiske & Co. A thoroughly interesting and profitable story of the rise and improvement of the Na- tional Capital. " The Battles of the Giants " is a most vivid sketch of the great debates of political leaders. Not written for local circulation, and has a permanent historical value. The Leading Facts of French History. D.H.Montgomery. Boston: Ginn. $1.25. A narrative of French history from the earliest to the present time. Fully equal in its charm to the work which it somewhat resembles, Myer's " Outlines of Mediaeval and Mod- ern History." Rich in maps and appendix matter. It will hold the reader's interest to the end, and stimulate a desire for thorough knowledge of the nation's affairs with which it has to do. The Ideals of the Republic. New York: Putnam's. $1.00. A "nugget " of pure gold. Contains the Declaration, the Constitution, Washington's first and second Inaugurals and Farewell Address, Lincoln's first and second Inaugurals and Gettysburg Address.

It contains a selection of the " most memorable passages " from the writings of the great reviewer. As to the execution of the volume, it is only necessary to say that it is a " Knickerbocker Nugget." The book will make many an hour delightful for those who chance to possess it. The Prelude. William Wordsworth, with Notes by A. J. George. Boston: D. C. Heath & Co. 50 cents. An excellent edition of Wordsworth's great autobiographical poem. Useful to students CRAYON BLEU. 367 rather than busy readers of the poet. An able paper by Prof. George, as a preface, gives a survey of his life and work. The notes are very complete. An Introduction to the Poetry of Robert Browning. W. J. Alexander. Boston : Ginn &Co. Sharp analysis, pithy criticism, and sympathy with the poet's mood characterize this volume. The " Analysis of Sordello " is a special feature. If riddles must be given us, their solution will be sought. We welcome anything which may help unsnarl Mr. Brown- ing's meanings for those who fail to understand him, believing, however, that he is not so difficult as imagined. A White Umbrella in Mexico, by F. Hopkinson Smith, Boston : Houghton, Mifflin & Co. $1.25. A fascinating journal of travel, impressed deeply by the personality of the artist. There is a delicate sense of humor which makes the chapters delightful. The make-up of the volume is superb. A book which will not accumulate dust on the library shelves. The Story of Patsy, by Kate Douglas Wiggin. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin & Co. A pathetic little story. With his odd replies, his unfortunate three lost years, and his trials with Jimmy Battles, little Patsy provokes many a smile, and a tear would not denote a merely sentimental readeV. It is a natural, plainly told story, and draws us nearer humanity in our sympathies. Elementary Psychology. Daniel Putnam. New York: A. S. Barnes & Co. 90 cents. This is a text-book of first principles of mental and moral science. Its positions are clearly taken and logically followed. A dry subject is here made quite pleasing and very practical.

It contains extracts from standard writers, English and American, which are analyzed in accordance with principles treated in the Rhetoric men- tioned. Will be very valuable in connection with this latter text-book. Thoroughness characterizes it. The Crusade of Richard I. Edited by T. A. Archer. New York: Putnam's. $1.25. In " English History by Contemporary Writers." As its title promises, this is one of the most interesting volumes in this priceless series. There are many maps, illustrations, indices, and sections of appendix material. An elegant book of lasting value. Memory Training. William L. Evans. New York: A. S. Barnes & Co. ^1.25. One grows to look askance at all sorts of memory systems and schemes of memory cul- tivation. This seems a practical volume, however. The author stands on firm physiologi- cal and psychological ground, and the result is, so far as we can see, a trustworthy system. At least it does not involve five dollars and an iron-clad oath for the first lesson. Principles of Procedure in Deliberative Bodies. Geo. G. Crocker. N. Y. : Putnam's. 75 cents. The author was president of the Massachusetts senate in 1883. This manual is clear, 3^^ CRA YON BLEU. terse, and comprehensive. Contains a complete index.

In " Heath's German Series." A careful edition of what the author designates " one of the most popular modern society dramas ever represented on the German stage." Ad- mirably adapted for class-room use. Hotner's Odyssey. Books I-IV. Edited by B. Perrin. In "College Series of Greek Authors." Boston : Ginn. $1.50. Maintains the high excellence of the series. The notes are adapted to stimulate study, although references are made in some cases to material beyond the reach of the average student who would use the book. Concise Vocabulary to the First Six Books of Homer's Iliad. Thomas D. Seymour. Boston : Ginn. 80 cents. Uniform with " College Series of Greek Authors." It would have been more useful if bound with the text which it illustrates. It seems, however, in its present form hardly able to increase the efficiency of such a book as Autenreith's " Homeric Dictionary." The definitions are concise and the references numerous.

The weeklies and the bi-weeklies have received little mention in this department the past year, not because they have failed to interest, for it has been a real pleasure often to turn from the solid and aristocratic monthly to its democratic contemporary, which in addition to a little light fiction and verse gives latest news, and gossips about common college interests and the men whom we have come to know through their prominence in inter- collegiate associations and contests, but rather because it has seemed more within the sphere of the Lit. to " pass judgment upon " and exchange good wishes and compliments with its fellow Lits. The other college publications, however, have been so gladly wel- comed that a word of acknowledgment is due to each. Of the weeklies, the Amherst Student and Williams Weekly have been regular visitors. Each has a well defined personality. The Williams Weekly is a model for conciseness, clearness, compactness ; its editorials are short and to the point, and its news department is a news department. " Cobwebs " has not reached the mark of the previous year, but it embodies an excellent idea. The typographical excellence of the Weekly is also much to be commended. The Amherst Student is noteworthy for its vigorous and outspoken char- acter, never hesitating to attack that college* thought or interest which does not seem the right and proper thing. It should, we think, guard against a tendency to permit its fear- lessness to run away with it. It is a mistake when a newspaper, especially a college newspaper, becomes in the slightest degree dictatorial or querulous. The Tech., with its odd red cover, next commands our attention. It is the only one of the bi-weeklies upon our exchange list that ventures into the field of the " continued story," and in this rather dangerous venture it has met with uniform success. The Tuftonian has recently commenced a series of papers upon " Reminiscences of Col- lege Days," by graduates. The last one, contributed by a '74 man, contains a base-ball item, which we clip. " The games which we played with Dartmouth and with Brown from year to year were the most delightful events. The first game with Dartmouth was a defeat for us, but their victory was Capuan, and they were unable to repeat it. We went to Hanover, and were most cordially received, beaten, feted, and sent home by midnight coach and rail, with the kindly, albeit victorious, shouts of Dartmouth ringing in our ears. We joined in their hurrahs, and vowed that there were no men like Dartmouth's. The next season they were at College Hill, and we did our best to render like for like, includ- ing the beating, and succeeded. I hope and believe they afterwards declared that there were no men like Tuft's men." In the Bowdoin Orient of May 22, " How to Write an Orient Article " contains sound advice which could be profitably read by others as well as by the Bowdoin student who aspires to the editorial board of a college magazine. The Orient seems somewhat weak in its literary department. This is hardly to be expected of the college of Hawthorne and Longfellow. Each issue of the Yale Courant abounds in verse, by which it manages to redeem itself 370 EXCHANGES. for some of the stories it seems obliged to print. " Yalensicula," a pot-pourri department of advertisements, puns, jokes, and rhymes, is a distinguishing feature. The Harvard Advocate is one of the very best of the fortnightlies. Unlike the Yale Coiirant, its province lies not in poetry, but in fiction. That the Advocate's stories in gen- eral are so good may be due to the fact that they are longer than the average story found in other bi-weeklies. An extra column or two helps out greatly in the treatment of a plot. Of the other exchanges, which we would mention more in detail did space allow, are the Trinity Tablet, a substantial publication, ably edited, which often contains very good verse; the Brtaionian, whose chief fault seems to be an almost pardonable egotism; and the always enjoyable comic illustrated papers, whose position is unique. The Harvard Lampoon and the Yale Record. The following clippings are the best We have been able to cull from a scanty supply of verse : When the ways are heavy with mire and rut, In November fogs, in December snows, "When the north wind howls, and the doors are shut, — There is place and enough for the pains of prose ; But whenever a scent from the white thorn blows, And the jasmine-stars at the casement climb. And a Rosalind face at the lattice shows. Then hey ! for the ripple of laughing rhyme ! When the brains get dry as an empty nut, When the reason stands on its squarest toes. When the mind (like a beard) has a " formal cut," There is place and enough for the pains of prose ; But whenever the May-blood stirs and glows, And the young year draws to " the golden prime," And Sir Romeo sticks in his ear a rose. Then hey ! for the ripple of laughing rhyme ! — Nassau Lit. TO A PICTURE. In other days, — my thoughts retrace The century fled, when your fair face, In antique gilt and gold now set, Swayed hearts ensnared by witchery's net ; Your eyes smile down, care left no trace. Nor can Time's touch those charms efface. With step sedate and courtly grace You danced the stately minuet In other days. Now dim with age the snowy lace. For flying years speed on apace. At times there comes a vague regret That hearts grow cold, and men forget That vanished charms held regal place In other days. — Cornell Era. Alumni Notes. That this department may be as interesting and valuable as possible^ we solicit contributions from all. Items that may seem unimportant to the contributor will no doubt carry to some readers remem- brances of happy but departed days. It is with regret that we leave our Alumni friends for the summer months — those months they mean so much to many, yes, to most of them. When college again opens, we shall doubtless find some in new places, some will be returning refreshed from summer resorts in the Old World or the New, some will leave us forever, while some names will be added to the list, ever increasing, of Dartmouth's daughters and grandchildren. Right here we wish to make a confession. The Alumni Notes this year have not been the confidential chats we would have liked to have them. Their material has been largely gathered from that great organ of the world, the daily paper. In this way we can see only the outside, the more public incidents of the lives of our friends. We glory in the great public achieve- ments of our Alunmi — no college of our size has done better; still, in our Alumni Notes we would like more of the face-to-face relation that can be gained only by personal com- munication. We extend again the invitation that stands month by month at the head of our columns, — that each Alumnus communicate to us in person the interesting facts of his own life and of the lives of his classmates. A pleasant summer to the toilers, a pleasant vacation to those who enjoy a well earned rest, is the Lit.'s wish for its friends ! Following are some of the Dartmouth men who delivered Memorial Day orations : In Vermont, — Fred L. Laird '84, of Montpelier, at East Corinth; George W. Hendee '82 hon., at Morrisville ; George W.

The room of a college student is apt to be regarded as a depository of furniture of merely transitory interest and value. We have, however, chanced to learn of a poker which has existed in one room for over forty years. In the north-east corner, second story of the brick house on College street, now owned by Mr. H. L. Carter, and occupied before him by Mr. Benton and Mr. Maxam successively, may be seen a heavy stick of hard wood, brown as mahogany with age, and bearing marks of fire at the end. On this stick are carved, the following names of those who have occupied the room: Breaux 1847, Hooke 1851, Nesmith 1854, Haskell 1854, Parsons 1856, Long 1858, Dodge i860.

Dr. H. J. Harriman, of Revere, died at East Peacham, Vt., April 14, after a long illness. He was born in Peacham in 1858, and prepared for college at St. Johnsbury. In 1875 he entered Dartmouth, and graduated in the class of '79, taking high rank as a scholar. The following year he studied medicine in the office of Dr. G. B. BuUard, of St. Johnsbury, and then entered Dartmouth Medical College, and graduated with the valedictory. After a brief post-graduate course in New York, he accepted a position as assistant out-physician in the Concord Insane Asylum. After several months' service at this institution he resigned, and settled in Revere, Mass., where he acquired a good practice. He was a member of the Massachusetts Medical Society, and at one time secretary of the Boston Gynaecological Society, and contributed several papers to medical literature. He had held the position of surgeon to the Soldiers' Home in Chelsea since 1885, and was a member of the Revere school board until obliged to resign on account of ill-health. He was much esteemed by his instructors, and universally beloved by his associates. His education and ability marked him as a man of unusual promise in the profession. He married, October 5, 1886, Miss Susie Hall, of Revere, Mass. '80. • W. E. Barrett, Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, made an interesting speech at a banquet given Mr. W. P.

The NEW EDITION includes a Dictionary that contains thousands of words not to be found in any other Dictionary. A PRONOUNCING BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY of over 12,000 personages. A PRONOUNCING GAZETTEER OF THE WORLD, noting and locating over 20,000 places. A DICTIONARY OF SYNONYMES, containing over 5,000 v^^ords in general use, also over 12,500 NEW WORDS, recently added, all in one volume. Illustrated with Wood-Cuts and Full-Page Plates. In the face of the most bitter opposition, Worcester's Dictionary has won its way solely upon its merit, until it is now recognized as "by far the best authority as to the present use of the English language." The National Standard of American Literature. Every edition of Longfellow, Holmes, Bryant, Irving, Whittier, and other eminent American authors, follows Worcester. "It presents the usage of all great English writers." Many publishing houses, which for a time adopted a rival work, have now gone over to Worcester. The same is true of the leading magazines and newspapers. The Harper''s Magazine, Weekly, New York Tribune, Herald, Times, World, Post, Sun, Independent, Nation, the Boston Advertiser^ Transcript, Herald, Globe., Philadelphia Ledger, and other leading papers all over the country, now use the word-forms presented by Worcester. It presents the accepted usage of our best public speakers, and has been regarded as the standard by our leading orators,— Everett, uSumner, Phillips, Gartield, Hillard, and others. Most clergymen and lawyers use Worcester as authority on pronunciation. Worcester's Dictionaries have been largely used in the common schools since their publication. Every year brings an extended tield and an increased sale. They have been recommended by state superintendents of education and adopted by state boards. All the leading cities of the country have authorized tlieir use, among which are Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Chicago, Wash- ington, St. Louis, Cambridge, Worcester, etc. Dartmouth College, Hanover, N. H. From President Bartlett: " I have always regarded Worcester's Dictionary as the true representa- tive of English orthography and pronunciation, and I wish a wide circulation to this new and improved edition." College op New Jersey, Princeton, N. J. From President McCJosh: "I am amazed at the amount of knowledge in this large volume, which every scholar should possess. Worcestc^r's Dictionary, so well known, needs no commendation from me. Its value has been increased by an appendix containing later words in use." For Hale by all booksellers. J. B.
